Oakley offers a diverse variety of sunglass designs such as club masters, wrap-around and Retro Square. They also provide sunglasses with various styles, lens color, frame color size, face shape, usage, coverage, lens material, frame material and theme. Once we have got our favorite pair of sunglasses, initially we take a lot of care about them, but with time without even knowing we start abusing our sunglasses and they break. One of the most common damages to sunglasses is that the hinges break.

What Is a Sunglass Hinge?

Hinges of a sunglass are the movable joints that connect the temples to other parts of the frame and allow the temples to fold inwards.

There are many times of sunglass hinges like standard hinges and Spring Hinges. Now–a–days a few frames are also made without hinges. These are hinge-less frames.

What Causes Them to Break?

There are several habits of ours that break our sunglasses like taking them off with one hand, not putting it back in the case, putting them on the top of our head, leaving them on windshield, exercise and play high intensity sports with the wrong type of glasses on and fall asleep with them on. Letting other people wear your sunglasses can also stretch the frame and result in broken hinges.
